So your installing a new security system beware?

Security in Utah

Security Systems in Utah

Before going with any security company go through a simple checklist:

1. Check the Better Business Bureau for how many complaints, the type of complaints and reviews. www.bbb.org
Two of the large competitors have over 3000 complaints that have been filed.

2. If the security system is internet based know that if the power goes out so will your security system.
Sure the system is less expensive but ask yourself why is it less money?

3. If you only have a phone line connected and the phone line is cut no signals will be sent. (Install AES Radio or Cellular)
Having both phone and cell is fine but phone only or internet only is not as secure.

4. Ask yourself if you would buy Chinese food from your plumber. If not then buy security from a security company not a cable company.
We specialize in security, we don’t do other things outside of that scope. Look online and find out what type of service others have gotten from that company. When you buy cable TV or Dish often it is very easy to buy but how good is the customer service after you have purchased? Are they a local company?

5. Is their central station UL listed and 5 Diamond Certified? Why should you care? It makes a difference.
If you are dealing with a local company they know the area and they are easier to deal with.

6. Does the alarm company you are going with have a Guard/Patrol service inhouse? If you are in SLC know that Police do not respond to normal alarms.

A. Peak Alarm has only had one complaint in the last 3 years.
B. Peak Can install an AES Radio or Cellular communicator with battery backup in case the power goes out.
C. Peak is a local company that has been in business for over 48 years
D. Peak Alarm has a full service Guard/Patrol, UL listed central Station that is 5 Diamond certified
E. Peak Alarm is a local with all employees having been through an extensive FBI background check.

Peak Alarm has stepped up their advertising so you will see TV commercials, Radio spots and even electronic billboard ads for Peak Alarm. The new look of our website is very professional and after more than 47 years in business Peak Alarm is not only growing but improving as well.

Peak take complaints seriously and I met with the owner and the CEO of the company and they review these comments and use them as a way to improve what we are currently doing. Peak employees over 300 people locally and yet we are still a small company in many ways because you can still call our company (801) 486 7231 and get a live person quite quickly. We pride ourselves by striving to take care of our customers.

Peak Alarm has only had 1 complaint filed with the Better Business Bureau in the last 3 years. Many of our competitors have hundreds and there are a couple of our competitors that have more than 3000 complaints. So be sure to check the www.bbb.org before buying any security system.

Peak Alarm also does not do Credit Checks. Peak does not give away free equipment either and that is why we have been in business so long. You may get a song and a dance from other companies claiming to give you something FREE but the truth is that equipment is not free, you will either pay more per month or you will pay for a longer period of time. So if the install is free compare against a normal Peak Alarm plan and you will see that we measure up in many ways that others don’t. Often other companies will run a credit check, they will also charge you more than $50 per month for normal monitoring services when Peak can give you additional services that other companies can for the same or for less money per month.

Beware of Monitoring companies that have very low cost plans per month because often they are computerized, or they are out of state or out of the country and the person calling you does not know anything about Salt Lake, Utah or Idaho when Peak Employees do. Peak Alarm is the only full service alarm company that has a full service Guard/Patrol company as well so when the Police do not respond, we do. Peak can normally get to your home in the Salt Lake area within 15 minutes and if the Police do respond in your area many times they will get there in 30 or even take over an hour.

Worry less live more

Peak Alarm

Peak Alarm

1. Water leak in your home destroys carpet in basement and sheetrock – Prevention or mitigation step = Add water sensors to your security system

2. Home drops below 40 degrees at grandmas house when she is asleep – Add a low/high sensor to alert you when it is too hot or too cold.

3. Kids keep changing the thermostat and your bill is too high. – Add thermostat control to your security system you control on your phone.

4. You worry about your dogs or kids when you are not home. – Add cameras in family areas or outside to check in on things with your phone.

5. You kids loose house keys or you need to let others in but you don’t want to give out more keys.

Answer to #5 – Install electronic locks that you control with your phone from anywhere. You kids can get in using a code and the codes can be updated and changed very easily.

6. Who is coming to your door when you are not home? Tell your kids not to answer the door. – WIth SKYBELL you answer your door with your phone

7. Did I close the garage door or not? – Add a garage door sensor and an automatic closer you can control with your phone

8. Similar to 2 your home freezes when you are not there and the pipes freeze which will turn into a flood when they break and thaw

Answer to #8 Add a temperature sensor so you will be alerted to get someone over to get the heater back on before anything freezes

9. What if there is a fire when we are on vacation or what if there is a fire and we are overcome by CO or smoke and don’t wake up? This is a legitimate worry because many people don’t wake up if the smoke or CO is overwhelming. When dispatched the Fire Department will get in and save your family within minutes. The small monthly monitoring cost is worth every penny.

Answer to #9 -Install smoke detectors and CO sensors that are tied to the monitored security system so help will be dispatched

10. What if you need to let the UPS guy into the garage? Talk to him with SKYBELL, disarm your system, open the garage door, he put the package in and you view him, shut the garage door and rearm the system all the time while you are on vacation using your cell phone.

11. Burglars see your lights turn on and off at certain times. —–
Have your lights turn on and off at random times with the Z-wave options on your security system

Have a z-wave plug in module turn radio on and off at certain times or any other electronic device. Call Larry Love for pricing and options.

WORRY LESS AND LIVE MORE. With any of the above options you won’t have to worry about those things. I have AAA so I don’t worry about running out of gas, locking my keys in the car or having a dead battery because it is covered and someone will come and help. With any of the above options installed on your security system you will have less to worry about and more time to live your life. Stephen King wrote in one of his books “Perfect Paranoia is perfect awareness.” With proper prevention steps you won’t worry about something that you should not be worrying about.

We also have WATER COP which can SHUT THE WATER PIPES OFF. (This will also require that we work in conjunction with a plumber)

Call Larry Love 801 428 1384 Larry@peakalarm.com http://www.peakalarm.com for more information about how to add to or upgrade your security system so you can worry less and live more.

Month to month monitoring

Month to month agreements are available

Month to month agreements are available

Larry Love at Peak Alarm can arrange MTM Month to Month monitoring at our UL listed Central Station for Fire Alarm or Security intrusion monitoring. ESPANOL / INGLES

Larry@peakalarm.com (801) 428 1384 http://www.peakalarm.com

Understand that when we do MTM / Month to month we cannot subsidize the equipment or the labor so we will need the upfront costs taken care of at signup. On our basic Peaklink it would be about $900 upfront and then we can do a MTM Month to Month agreement at a good monitoring rate>

Monitoring rates vary depending on the services you request. We can be as low as $25 per month for phoneline monitoring, as low as $35 per month on cell monitoring and normally around $40 per month on AES Radio monitoring, Fire Alarm cellular monitoring is right around $48 per month because of the high supervision signals that need to be sent every 6 minutes on the cellular unit. Call Larry for individual rates. If you have multiple properties or businesses we can work a deal. If you need a repair agreement added we can help with that or if you need Guard Response on alarms because Salt Lake won’t respond then it will be $10 per month extra and includes 4 responses per year on alarms.

Rated best all around Alarm Company in Utah

Picture taken by Larry Love

Picture taken by Larry Love

Factors for rating the best all around alarm company in Utah. If you find another company that meets all of these criteria please let me know and I will add them to this article. :

1. Years in service 47+ and family owned.

2.A+ Rating with the Better Business Bureau http://www.bbb.org and this company only has 2 complaints on file within the last 2 years.

3. Ability to do any size project for Fire Alarm, Home Security, Business Alarms, Access Control, Intercoms and Cameras. This company has the capacity and 270 employees and can do any size project.

4. UL listed Central Station that is 5 Diamond certified with backup systems in place and backup central stations out of state. This company has more UL Certifications than any UL Central Station in Utah. Facts don’t lie. http://www.ul.com
5. This company owns their own Guard and Patrol division so they can respond to alarms and they have guard accounts and a large patrol division. All other alarm companies in the state of Utah hire this service out to a third party company.

6. This company also has an AV Division that is rated #19th in the National for what they do. This Audio Visual division can do home theater systems, security systems and very large theaters. They welcome you for tours at their Salt Lake City location.

7. This company has 4 offices to serve you in Salt Lake City, Saint George, Idaho Falls and Boise Idaho. They also have guard and patrol services in Park City and the adjacent areas.

8. This company does not charge a trip charge for accounts within 45 minutes of their offices. Many companies charge over $100 dollars per hour for trip charges so this alone would add over $200 more to a service call if you were 45 minutes away.

9. When reviewing the top ten lists or top five alarm company lists understand that you are viewing paid advertisements. Many of the companies that appear in these lists have over 100 complaints filed with the BBB and one top competitors has over 3000 filed in the last 2 years and they are currently being sued in several states.

10. This top rated company has a CAD department with the ability to do the drawings needed to submit to the city to get your permits and to get the job done professionally. Do your research before you hire an alarm company and I would be leery of the TOP rated companies on the PAID lists.

11. This company is licensed and insured and holds National Training certificates and has multiple NICET trained people. This company can provide you with the General Liability insurance required as well as Workers Compensation Insurance certificates and a very long list of projects that they have completed.

Who is this company that meets all the above criteria?

Many companies that are on the top ten or top five lists mainly concentrate on wireless systems because they are quick and easy. Peak Alarm does more commercial alarm systems than residential although it is just over 50% commercial and we can do the job right the first time.

The Company I would rate as number two: I did find another company that met many of the criteria but not all. The company I found does not have a Guard and Patrol division and they sold their central station although it did stay in the family so as I said they meet many of the criteria but not all. Mountain Alarm in Ogden is a great company and large enough to do most any project, they are insured,licensed and factory trained. They do both commercial and residential. Mountain Alarm has been in business since 1952, they also only have 2 complaints on file with the BBB in the last 2 years and they also have an A+ rating. When I was the Chairman of the Alarm Systems Board for Division of Occupational Licensing for the State of Utah Scott Sessions with Mountain Alarm was on the Board with me. Scott is a very professional businessman and a very positive and honest guy. So their you have it two recommendations for all around top rated Alarm Companies here in Utah. Peak Alarm and Mountain Alarm. http://www.mountainalarm.com z

Security pricing step by step

First obtain your instructions in English

First obtain your instructions in English

Step 1 – Determine your needs and have an basic drawing and specifications of what you would like to all bidders can bid the same exact thing.

Step 2 – Only call licensed, insured Security companies that have a good rating with the Better Business Bureau. Check the Better Business Bureau Official Site

Step 3 – Check the Utah Occupational licencing web site to make sure they are a licensed company. DOPL Web site in utah

Step 4 – If you don’t have a site plan or enough knowledge to know what you need then call a reputable company that can help with that. Often companies will help with this for free although if you are going to put the project out to bid it is much better to pay a company to help with the design and the specifications. Let them know that you do not want to specify products that only one or two companies in the state can do. (Proprietary)

Step 5 – Understand there are big differences between a small commercial security system and a large commercial system. Often alarm companies will sell the small commercial systems to a medium or large business and then they don’t have expansion or all the features that may be needed. Cutting corners to save money is something that happens quite often. If you need special certifications for insurance make sure you do your homework so you will get the proper equipment installed. If you need special certifications like UL2050 and you have the wrong equipment installed it can be very costly to have equipment taken out and new equipment installed again.

Step 6 – Make sure the Alarm company you hire has the proper certifications for monitoring and installation. In Utah there are only 4 UL listed central stations that have the UUFX listing, only 5 that have the CRZH listing, only 3 that have the CPVX listing and only 3 that have the CVSG listing and only 2 that have the CRZM listing and only one local UL listed Central Station that has all 5 of these listings. (Peak Alarm) You can get on the UL web site to verify these listings. Official UL Web site

Example:

Cost of item(s)__________+ Cost of wire _________+cost of installation________+cost of conduit___________ = Actual cost

___Verify Licensing
___Verify UL listing certifications
___Verify Factory Training
___Verify code requirements for specific projects (NFPA 72, IFC, DOD, JFAN, ICD, ICS 705-1,ISPOM, UL2050 etc…..)
___Verify insurance – workers compensation – auto insurance – general liability insurance

Small installation = Simple pricing and wireless equipment – easy to price and monitor

Medium to large commercial installations – need specifications – equipment list – lift rental – site visit evaluation etc….
